This is my birth story. I was overdued by 2 days, and thus mummy has to be induced.

11:30pm - Mummy was sent to Delivery Suite 3A.
11:45pm - Dr. Adrian arrived. He burst mummy's water bag to start the labour.

11 Sept 07:
12:00am - Midwife put mummy on oxytoxin drip & monitor her contractions on CTG.
12:30am - I was struggling in mummy's womb, trying to find the emergency button to go out.
1:00am - Midwife informed Dr. Adrian that my heartbeat was irregular and fast.
2:00am - Midwife did VE check on mummy. She was only 1 - 2cm dilated.
